    Caribbean Rice and Beans

    I admitted that I did not know too much about Caribbean food, but I am reading and learning every day. It is a fascinating subject with such a variety of products, foods and recipes that I hope you might be tempted to try.
    Caribbean recipes combine African, Amerindian, French, East Indian, British,Oriental and Spanish styles of cooking. These traditions are a reflection of the early settlers of the region.

    Rice and bean dishes are a staple food in many regions of the world, but I had never seen this served here until lately.

    In the Caribbean, each island has their own way of preparing them. My first recipe I want to offer you is Caribbean Rice and Beans from Member #182809
    Thank you so much Happy Harry to have introduced us to this Caribbean gem.
    Following Caribbean influence, I used coconut oil to replace olive oil.

    1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
    1 large pimiento, thin strips or 1 large roasted red peppers, cut into short thin strips
    1/2 small green peppers, cut into short, thin strips
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 (16 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
    2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
    5 -10 dashes Tabasco sauce ( can use another hot sauce)
    3 cups cooked white rice
    3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced
    salt, to taste
    pepper, to taste

    In large saute pan, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add pimiento, green pepper and garlic.
    Saute 2 minutes.
    Add beans, Tabasco, and vinegar.
    Bring to boil, reduce heat to low, cover nd simmer 5 minutes.
    Stir in rice and cilantro. Stir.
    Salt and pepper to taste.

    Hope you try this great recipe.
    Happy Cooking!

    Very nice, thanks for sharing! As to Color after you type in a word or phrase, left click your cursor and run it over the area you wish to change, then click on the color arrow where a list will drop down. Click on the one you like.

    The color box is just above this box to the right (when your posting or replying)

    For some reason it doesn't work for me; I highlight it and as soon as I touch the color I chose the highlight part disappears.
